BNF Publications will now host the Summary of antimicrobial prescribing guidance – managing common infections on behalf of the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) and Public Health England (PHE). The hosting on BNF.org is an interim measure, whilst a long-term solution for the governance and hosting is established.
The Summary is a rapid reference containing recommendations around antimicrobial prescribing from NICE and PHE. The Summary will be updated at least quarterly and is available as a PDF and Word Document (updated March 2022).
The current version was updated March 2022, with changes made to recommendations for Acute otitis media.
